its a corolla with silvia headlight conversions
Posted 3/1/08

well thats where you fail, conversions are personal opinions... i have 2 240's and i hate silvia conversion and my s13 still has its flip up light... and my zenki s14 still has its zenki headlights

imo silvia conversions suck (only did taillight)...

i have flip-up lights on my 240...i hate silvia front...i think it looks ugly...but thats my opinion... and i have kouki tails on both s13 and s14.. lol

there are couple conversions i like.... on a s13 coupe a s14 kouki front end or a s14 kouki front on a s13 converitble is pretty pimp too

yah i like the jdm front on the integ

Nah dude, fnck what others say. Silvia conversions are sick. They're one of the most common front end conversions that looks good. And besides, it's YOUR car and money. Yea.. Mixing different makes isn't a good idea. Yep.

Body Conversions are just fine with me. It doesn't matter if the if the parts are from different manufacturers, as long as it looks decent and not something out of a horror movie or a demolition derby. But the most important thing is that the owners are happy with their car.

I don't mind unless we're going across makes or models. If you're going to do it, do it on the same model line of cars.

honestly i really don't care about body conversions so long as it looks good. to me theres nothing wrong with taking an import such as an integra and slapping on a jdm front end conversion. IMO the jdm front end conversion for the integra looks a whole lot better than the beam holes that we have over here. also taking an ae86 and putting a levin conversion on it is equally good looking since everyone and their mom has the flip-up head lights on their stock ae86's. plus the levin look to me is cleaner but i dunno if that look is still unique anymore. so its really up to the owner of the car to decide on what he/she is gonna do.

It'd be easier to use something other than an S2000 engine. Putting an S2k engine in an 86 is just as hard as putting a 2JZ in.

I love seeing post like this anywhere, where kids think s2000 engines are easier then tuning the stock motor.

revolutionofone is right.

but most of it ALLL depends on how much money you got. I assume CoExist doesnt know anything about cars or motor swaps, so doing either is goin to cost more then what the corolla was worth.

I think a 2001 perlude front light on a Honda accord 2004 and the tail like of a Skyline back of the 04 accord. Shit i had a friend did a whole front converstion of a 01 integra on a 97 civic was pretty badass. cost him about 5Gs .

what do i think of it? RICE

it's rice if you're trying to convert your car into something completely different. like those civic to rsx conversions (those are just nasty). if you're just slightly modifying it because you like the look of it's japanese counterpart then it's fine as long as you dont go overboard imo
